EMI, 2000. New Copy
The first-ever full length presentation of a legendary live set from D'Angelo – recorded early in his career, and working through a host of classic tunes that really add in a nice layer to his own great music! D'Angelo's caught here in the legendary temple of groove – London's Jazz ... CD

DFA, 2014. New Copy
The best yet from Sudan-born, Brooklyn-dwelling Sinkane – distilling a lot of diverse sonic influences into his own distinct soul! There's a lot going on here, inspiration wise – with modern synth-stoked twists on 70s Afrobeat influences, tropically-inflected R&B and lots of other ... LP, Vinyl record album

Worldwide Underground
Motown, 2003. New Copy
A nice one from Badu – one with a depth of feeling and genuine soulful vibes that live up to its title, despite the fact that she records for one of the world's biggest media conglomerates! It's all about the vibe here. Erykah rolls her syllables, scats and emotes feelings more than an ... LP, Vinyl record album

Black Messiah
RCA, 2014. New Copy 2 LPs Gatefold
D'Angelo comes back after many years awol from the studio – and the result is a stunning new step in his music! We've loved the man from day one – and some folks could well say that he really helped reinvigorate soul back in the 90s – and all his time away from the studio has ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jarrod Lawson
Jarrod Lawson, 2014. New Copy
A stunning debut from Jarrod Lawson – a singer we fell in love with right away – and who we'd rank right up there with some our favorite mellow soul artists of the 70s! Yes, the cover's got a look that's more indie rock – but Jarrod's got this righteous vibe and sense of flow ... CD

Early Riser
Brainfeeder, 2014. New Copy
A great debut from Taylor McFerrin – family member to another famous jazz singer, but very much possessed of his own self and style! The album's got this crackling, glistening quality – subtle electronics and Fender Rhodes mixing with Taylor's well-crafted vocals – never ... CD

One
Gentle Daze, 2015. New Copy
The best yet from Cameroon-born, Netherlands-raised singer Ntjam Rosie – whose mix of earthy and future soul sounds have impressed is all along – but she's really establishing herself stronger than ever as a distinctive voice here. The sounds range from acoustic soul, to organic jazz ... CD

Cause & Effect
Tyvonn, 2015. New Copy
Beautifully smooth soul from Ty Causey – a singer who comes across with just the sort of class you'd expect from his image on the cover! Ty's been giving us great records for years, but this set may well be his best – a wonderfully mature session that carries forward echoes of earlier ... CD

Thoughtiverse Unmarred
Mello Music Group, 2015. New Copy
Take a trip into the Thoughtiverse with Georgia Anne Muldrow – a singer who's every bit as cosmic as before, but also finds a way to get nice and funky too! The album's got Georgia rhyming and singing in equal parts – always with that unique perspective that makes her music so ... CD

Brown Sugar
Capitol/Virgin, 1995. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
A record that was an instant classic from the moment it was first released – and a set that's still pretty darn pleasing all these many years later! At a time when mainstream soul was often too smooth or too poppy, D'Angelo came along and not only found a way to return the music to the years ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pookie, 2004. Very Good+

Sunshine At Midnight
Music World, 2007. Used
A long-overdue second album from Sunshine Anderson – the protege of Macy Gray who first broke big a number of years ago, then dropped from view until this release! The set's still got the upfront and positive sound of Anderson's debut – but there's also a deeper groove going on, and ... CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Kaleidoscope
Virgin, 1999. Used
At the time of this album's original release, the Neptunes had yet to take over the world, so it barely saw the light of day. Combining Chad & Pharrel's tight beats and infectious ghettofied songcraft with Kelis' sweet vocals, we can't really tell what the folks at the label were thinking, as ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Godless Hotspot, 2015. New Copy
The fun never sets when Van Hunt's around – especially given the fresh sound of this sweet little album! There's a crispy, gritty approach that's a bit different than Van Hunt's previous work – a way of bringing up the basslines and drums, while also dropping the singer's voice down ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Blue Note, 2015. New Copy
A sublime take on the music of Billie Holiday – served up in the tremendous vocals of Jose James! In the notes, James recalls that the music of Holiday is one of his first memories of childhood – and goes onto explain how much her music has meant to him over the years – a ... CD
